The Spellbinders Fancy Sentiment Strips Press Plate and Die Set is a versatile part of the Serenade of Autumn Collection. This set includes one press plate loaded with eight all-occasion sentiments, along with a corresponding thin metal cutting die that allows you to cut all the sentiments in one pass. From hello to anniversary to birthday, these sentiments can be added to many of your card creations, making it a valuable addition to your crafting supplies.
To achieve professional letterpress results, you can ink the plates with BetterPress Ink and press them against the BetterPress Cotton Card Panel and Sheets. The BetterPress system simplifies the letterpress process with just four easy steps. Start by placing the BetterPress Press Plate onto the Chase, a magnetic platform designed to hold the press plate. Next, tape the Card Panel on the Platen, a clear top plate with registration marks. Apply ink onto the Press Plate, and finally, make a Letterpress Sandwich by running it through your manual die-cutting machine.
The BetterPress system offers a convenient way to achieve the elegant look of letterpress without the usual mess. It produces professional stationery-style designs with detailed impressions that can be felt to the touch. You can combine BetterPress with other Spellbinders products, such as the Glimmer Hot Foil System and the Sealed with Spellbinders wax seal program, to create unique cards, stationery, projects, and more. The BetterPress System is compatible with your manual die-cutting machine, allowing you to easily create beautiful and detailed letterpress effects.
